Euso Lei – Hex : Cikara Di Barakata (ਚਿੱਕੜ ਦੀ ਬਰਕਤ)
A creature long since submerged in the swamp seeps out from beneath the veil of shadows and settles into a ritual interface, commencing an altered rite of passage ceremony. It no longer aims to grant its audience passage into the next stage of life; instead it foregrounds the power of the moments in liminality the ceremonies yield. Mangled breakbeats collide with delayed raven calls, harsh noise fuses with melancholic folk song, algorithmic arpeggiators align with dissonant harp melody, dubstep wubs unsoil swamp filth. Throughout the duration of the performance the playing field is leveled: omens and SD cards, basilisks and ALDI security guards, fairy paths and Hot Wheels cars, in Hex, all hold equal credence.
